Chers amis, ce petit message pour vous renouveler mes plus chaleureux remerciements et félicitations pour vos superbes prestations musicales durant nos célébrations du 14 juillet. Tout le public présent a été conquis par votre prestation, sur laquelle je n’ai eu que des torrents d’éloges. Vous avez ainsi puissamment contribué au succès de ces célébrations, et je vous en suis profondément reconnaissant. J’espère vivement que nous aurons d’autres occasions prochaines de vous revoir. Un grand bravo et un grand merci encore de tout coeur.
Dear friends, this little message to renew my warmest thanks and congratulations on your superb musical performance at the “Bastille Day” celebration. The whole audience was enchanted with your performance and were singing your praises to me. You have strongly contributed to the success of the celebration and I am deeply grateful. I hope that we will soon have further occasions of seeing you again. A great “bravo” and great thanks to you from the bottom of my heart.
Scott Asen, Paris Review, Annual benefit after party, 04/09/13
I have always been a big fan of classic French swing, the Hot Club of France and so forth. It is a wonderful surprise to find a deeply talented young group bringing that sound to America in the twenty-first century. The Avalon Jazz Band recently played for a sophisticated group of music loving friends in my house and turned a good party into an unforgettable night.(No need to report what time it all ended.) They’ll be back a lot!
Caroline Kallman Joffe, Govberg Jewelers, at the Barnes Foundation, 10/24/12
I truly cannot thank you enough for such an incredible experience on Wednesday night. We were absolutely thrilled to have the Avalon Jazz Band be a part of our special event at the Barnes, and I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you again in the future. The music lent itself perfectly to both the watch collections and art collections!
Eric Redd, Wedding in Woodstock, 07/22/12
As an act, The Avalon Jazz Band is so far above the echelon of talent in our industry of today, I am still weeks after my own personal wedding in awe of what I was able to see, hear and feel at my own event.
With a signature sound, they were able to weave a spell over my friends and family that people will remember for years to come. Their music choices were always delicate and palatable, the sound levels were lush and balanced, and visually they were picture perfect in our setting. As a music professional doing events for over 15 years, I have seen and been part of many bands in this business. To have had The Avalon Jazz Band make my wedding a moment I will always cherish is a dream come true. I will never be able to put into words the beauty they created on such a special night, but I want to take this moment to wish for them all the success the most sophisticated, talented artists I have ever had the pleasure of meeting should enjoy.
With honor and respect…
Jennifer Layne Cardon, Gogobot, “A Taste of St. Tropez” 08/14/12
Avalon provided the authenticity of France that our A Taste of St Tropez needed to become a huge success! The music was full of character and warmth and our guests were delighted to be entertained by them. Gogobot was thrilled to work with Avalon!
Angela Coronel, Brisketlab, 08/20/12
We have been so lucky to receive such great success for our event series, Brisketlab, this summer. But this success could not have been met without the participation of Avalon Jazz Band! Your sound and your look fit PERFECTLY with our vision of the series. Our guests loved the sultry music which paired so sweetly with the smokey brisket! Thanks so much for being a part of our fun and we hope to work with you again soon!!
Brian D. Farhi, American Leisure Corporation, 07/12/12
Thank you so much for putting on a great show at Oval Kids! The crowd was small but everyone had fun and you all sounded phenomenal!!
Anne Farnum-Messano, at the Barnes Foundation, 06/28/12
Thank you so much for coming down to play at the event. Our guests raved about the music, and it was such a treat to play them music reminiscent of the time and place of when so much of the art at the Barnes was created. I hope you and the rest of the band enjoyed it as much as we did.
Rosa & Billy Kim, wedding reception at the Foundry, 06/16/12
We were able to catch the last 20minutes of your performance and could not be more pleased! We’re so sorry we didn’t get to greet you or thank you in person, but honestly we could not be happier with our cocktail hour. You guys did an amazing job and we’re so lucky to have your band play on our wedding day. Our guests were gushing about how beautiful Tatiana’s voice was!
Wayne Baruch, the Barnes Foundation opening gala, 05/18/12
Avalon was just perfect for the occasion of opening the Barnes Foundation on Friday night. Your music is really charming and different, and played so well.
Chuck Gayton and I thank you for all you did to make the evening such a success. Thanks again and warm regards to you, Tatiana and the band.
Amy Heller, Wedding rehearsal at The Empire Rooftop, 03/23/12
Adrien, you and the band sounded amazing and looked fantastic. People have been talking about you and I have been sure to pass along your information.
Thank you again for helping make our Wedding weekend special. Your CD has been getting played lots.
Christi Baine, Holiday Party at The Union Square Ballroom, 12/16/11
Thank you so much for the wonderful performance this evening. I had wonderful compliments from everyone on how much they enjoyed your band. For me, the three of you were the best part of the evening. I was “working” all night so listening to you three (and drinking…ha) was my greatest joy.
